The last game these two teams played was a Uganda Cup game where Maroons knocked out Express fc in penalties following a 3-3 draw in normal time last month.

Maroons coach Douglas Bamweyana is on borrowed time following the club’s low performance in the second round.

The Prison warders come into this encounter on back of a 5-0 defeat to Vipers at St. Mary’s stadium Kitende just like Express fcalso lost their last game 2-1 to URA Fc at Wankulukuku.

Only one place separates both sides on the table with Express 12th and four points above Maroons.

Express’ captain Dissan Galiwango who has been nursing injuries is expected to start on the bench meaning goalkeeper Mathias Muwanga will wear the captain armband.

Express Fc will rely on Frank Kalanda and Eric Kambale whereas Maroons fc will have their hopes in the league leading scorer Steven Dese Mukwala with 13 goals to his name after missing the game against Vipers which is his parent club.

Coach Douglas Bamweyana alongside his players like Edgar Bwogi, Davis Mayanja and David Ndihabwe will be facing their former side.

The reverse fixture ended 2-2 at Njeru technical center with Kawanda and Frank Ssenyondo scoring for the Red Eagles while Mukwala and Fred Amaku found target for Maroons.
